Little update on the count.

Eleven last night and nine so far tonight and five of them were unfit through drink or drugs too.

I love the Christmas period so much ;)

Just been out walking the dogs and nearly got wiped out by some old doddery f#rt programming his Satnav.

Just as bad a habit as using a phone.

Doing make-up, eating, drinking, reading, shouting at kids in the back seat, rolling !Removed!, the list is endless.

All driving without due care.

whenever i pick up the little one from school, i see so many parents to dont buckle up their kids, this rally anooys me. i think you guys should stake out the schools and stop each car and tell them off!

It,s not just mobile phones that cause crashes. Some dipstick ran up the back of the riot van last week, his excuse was, didn't see you stop, I was adjusting with the radio. :wacko: . See you in court! :)

Anything that driver is doing that distracts from concentrating on the road ahead should be stamped on heavily. You guys on the road and in uniform are the ones to do it; power to your PNB. -_-

Quite right. Now, does anybody know where I can get a new shaver from? I dropped it in my cornflakes whilst driving to the station this morning.

A few months ago, I stopped to allow a lady driver to pull out from behind a parked car (being the gentleman I am). As she pulled out I could see she had her mobile in one hand. She decided to take the other hand off the wheel as well to wave, causing the car to straighten up and drive straight at me. In her panick she dropped the phone to grab the wheel in order to swerve to avoid me. I did laugh, but obviously I wouldn't have been laughing if she had hit me.

Laughing is probably the last thing I would have done, I would have gone for a severe tongue lashing. :angry:

Quite. But it does illustrate how little control people have when using such a device.

Using a mobile while driving is comparable to someone driving while just under the legal drink drive limit.

I was rear ended about 6 weeks ago by some young woman txting. It was bizarre really. I had already noticed she was putting more effort into texting than driving. On the third time of thinking “please love, get your head out your phone we’re coming up to traffic lights se just carried on. I watched her as she hit me. I did try to get my hazards on to alert her but by the time I got them on she was already in by boot.

Initially she said she was not using her phone and was just trying to turn it off as the ringing was distracting her from driving.

Needles to say petition signed.
